A barrage of missiles struck the recently liberated city of Kherson for the second day on Friday in a marked escalation of attacks since Russia withdrew from the city two weeks ago.
The city was shelled 17 times before midday on Thursday, and strikes continued into the evening, killing at least four people and injuring 10, according to Kherson’s military administration.
City workers were at first too overwhelmed to retrieve her as they responded to a deadly barrage of attacks that shook Ukraine’s southern city of Kherson.
It comes as Russia has stepped up bombardment of Ukraine’s power grid and other critical civilian infrastructure in a bid to tighten the screw on Kyiv.
Officials estimate that around 50% of Ukraine’s energy facilities have been damaged in the recent strikes.
